Lakewood to Tacoma
As a sub-consultant, Furtado & Associates (as L&A at the time) provided construction administration services for Sound Transit’s Lakewood Commuter Rail Station, which included a 193,000 square foot, four-story, 620 stall parking garage, bus transit center, and commuter rail loading platform. The parking structure consisted of concrete columns on spread footings with post-tensioned concrete beams and elevated slabs. Responsibilities included project management and control support, on-site inspection, cost control/estimating, schedule maintenance, and coordination of field changes. F&A also provided QA/QC as-builts during construction to ensure the construction team was meeting design standards, as well as supplemental surveys to support design changes during construction on an as–needed basis.
